New Ecclesiastical Year Letter
Beloved National Board, Chapter Presidents and Stewards of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society,
On behalf of the National Board of Philoptochos, I offer in thanksgiving heartfelt greetings to our dear sisters and brothers of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society as the new ecclesiastical year begins. May this period be replete with spiritual growth and enhanced service to our Church.
The stewards of the Philoptochos Society enter the new ecclesiastical year with distinct and joyous memories of our recent pilgrimage to the Phanar in honor of His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in celebration of the Feast Day.
Welfare for the Philippine People

They may be far away but they are our sisters and brothers and we are all God's children. Typhoon Haiyan has ravaged vast swaths in the major city of Tacloban in the Philippines leaving people displaced, homeless, without food and clean water, struggling to survive.
